When you have a "family jewels" showing like this, someone has already been first to make that "example" a product. Time to niche this one up.

Samsung is about to announce the SGH-i555. It is the successor to the SGH-i500. Has the above layout, quad-band GSM, EDGE, 3ghz OMAP, 1GB internal memory, dual expansion, WiFi G, BT v2.0, 2.8" vga screen, 1,000 hours of talk time. Should follow the same retail release schedule as the i500 this spring. :-

Where have you got this Samsung information from? Is this a joke or true?

If there's an award for vaporware (software category) of the century, Cobalt would take it hands down. Geez ... stop doing your pea**** dance and get it to bat, Palmsource.

PalmSource isn't (entirely) to blame for its EtherOS fiasco.

Naw, I think Apple Pink project is the biggest piece of vaporware that ever existed. When the execs found out that the demos were just HyperCard and a bunch of header files, the s**t hit the fan good.

Is based on OMAP I read. That phone is the most elegant smartphone based on Palm OS. Perhaps with OMAP the hardware can be reduced.

Has anybody tested that phone yet?
